Maternity clothes you’ll want to wear even if you’re not pregnant.

Ever had that feeling of irritable jealousy when you caught your pregnant friend still rocking cute cotton dresses and jeans without expandable waists? Yep, me too. In a blink of an eye I was in clothes that made me look like I was due any moment. . . and let’s not even discuss how long I wore those saggy maternity clothes after my baby was born. I could have used some pieces from the new-to-the-US Mayarya: More than Maternity line, which has so many gorgeous outfits that are designed to work with a woman’s changing body, whether she’s expecting, nursing, or not expecting at all. Created by Japan’s Reika...

Two nursing sports bras that will have you looking like their hot catalog models in no time. (Ha.)

Since my baby literally can’t be without me for more than 20 minutes without starting a scream-fest — I’m just that special, I guess — it means I need to be ready to feed pretty much at all times. Like, the second I arrive home from a workout. And that means I need a good nursing sports bra. It seems unfair that moms don’t have a million fantastic nursing sports bra options in this day and age, and I’ve been looking for great ones. I do wish I had more to share with  right now (I bet you and I can name several major brands that...

Rental maternity clothes: the genius way to look good at holiday parties

Having three babies in the winter means I spent three Decembers struggling with whether or not I should invest in a maternity winter coat I would only wear for a month or two.
